Madusa Trashes the WWF Women’s Title

Wrestler Madusa Miceli, who had recently left the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE), made an unexpected appearance on the WCW show.

This appearance was notable for a particularly controversial act: Madusa brought the WWF Women’s Championship belt with her, which she still possessed following her departure from the WWF.

In a bold and defiant gesture, Madusa proceeded to discard the WWF Women’s Championship in a shocking manner. She threw the title belt into a garbage can, live on national television.

This act was not just a dramatic moment in the show; it represented a significant escalation in the ongoing rivalry between the two wrestling promotions, known as the Monday Night Wars.
